A-Q says the possibility of working with Vector, his former friend and collaborator, is very slim.


The Nigerian hip-hop heavyweights have been at loggerheads in recent years, despite working well together early on in their careers.

Born Gilbert Bani, A-Q says the only time both of them can be found performing or recording together is “on cyphers”.

“I don’t think it can ever happen. The only time it can happen is only on cyphers,” he told TheCable Lifestyle.


A-Q said he harbours no animosity toward the ‘Lafiaji’ rapper but warned that he will not tolerate any form of disrespect from him.

He said: “Basically, I’m a stand-up guy, in everything I try to be a man about the situation first. I mean the long and short story is that keep my name out of your mouth and I’ll keep it the same.

“What I’m trying to say is that I’m not even competing, I’m in a lane of my own. I’m just doing what I feel I should do which is inspire, create as much superstars as I can create.


“And if what I’m doing is disturbing you and you have a problem with it, I’m not going to be bullied or back down. So, if you step into my lane, either try to take bread from my mouth or you run to say that I’m wack, then you have to show the public who is what or not.

In November 2020, A-Q left Chocolate City Music to set up a music incubator for African artistes.

He signed a joint venture deal with Africori Music Group, a music distribution platform, to discover, nurture and develop talented artists.
